The Unassuming Restaurant In Maine That Serves The Best Mac and Cheese You’ll Ever Taste

When people ask us for food recommendations in Maine, we almost always respond with a long list of seafood restaurants. From lobster to oysters to clam shacks, there’s no shortage of food from the sea when you’re in Vacationland. While all of these will have you smiling in seafood bliss, it’s okay to visit and not eat seafood. Especially when we may have found the best mac and cheese in Maine!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
